The utilization of descriptive language is important for the writer to entertain, persuade and teleport the reader into their work. Descriptive use and imagery allow the reader to experience the setting, sound, taste, and mood as if they can live through it. Which takes us to Shakespeare's play Hamlet. Not only does he utilize exceptional details and imagery throughout the play between the characters, but the way he uses word allows us to put ourselves into the play as if we can feel what they feel. It also allows us to experience and go through the play as if we are in it also. So in this paper, I would like to focus on a few major moments where I believe Shakespeare descriptive language is the strongest.

Graff then goes on to establish his ethos in the first few paragraphs while continuing to expand the thoughts and ideas on pathos throughout his essay. He begins to build his community and trust by recognizing his own credentials and sharing his personal background in writing. One of the first things noticed from the footnote about Gerald Graff’s professional career is that he has vast experience in the writing department. He is an English professor at a prestigious university, a past president of the Modern Language Association, and part of the professional association of scholars and teachers of English and other languages (198). But, since his background only assists his argument and does not define it, it is crucial to also look at his word choice, mood, language, and ideology in order to fully claim Graff a credible author.

A story is only as good as the way it is told. The way a writer uses his or her words to say something is just as important as what they don’t say. Charles Baxter, author of plethora of books and university teacher, writes a craft book that goes deeper than the surface of writing and deeper than the words written down. In Charles Baxter’s The Art of Subtext, he discusses how authors can use the words they do write just as much to express what they don’t write.
I sit in this AP Language and Composition class trying to decipher the essence of the unending annotations and floods of random texts for the past quarter. Little did I know that I would be taking flight and soaring through the smallest details and threads of literary devices and techniques of analyzing language. Before this class, I looked at a book, aware that it was filled with potential symbolism and crucial themes that were definitely worth considering. Yet, I often paid far less attention to the way words are crafted in efforts to create a beautiful masterpiece. Who knew that the jargon used in Snow Falling on Cedars could significantly shape the overall tone of the book? From the years leading up to this class, the main goal I had
The choice of diction and insertion of dialogue in each literary work supply them with distinct tones befitting of the authors’ particular purposes. While both Angelou and Alexie include colloquial dialogue in their works,
A writer's craft of the English language, is like a spiders web, beautiful and unique. It is necessary so the story can be woven in to create a masterpiece. The author can change the story entirely by changing the way the narrator speaks. In “The Cask of Amontillado”, “The Scarlet
Speaking or being spoken by literature - The difference Prior to high school, my experience of literature was limited to comics and short stories. I had never read a play or even come across the concept of literary devices. It was only recently that I encountered several ideas on the nature of literature. Specifically, the essay “The Ideal English Major” by Mark Edmundson brings up the intriguing idea that “some of us speak, others are spoken [by language].” It seemed obvious at first, but I now begin to understand how this could make the difference between a good book and a timeless classic, between an amazing author and a legend. There are different elements that separate those who speak from those who are spoken and the effect works that speak to us is much different. I came to the conclusion that what makes the difference between speaking and being spoken is one’s ability to use language creatively. Those who speak literature produce art. Their works are able to entertain educate and inspire us.
In a genre that contradicts a novelist's affluence of narrative explication, the language in its purest form becomes Shakespeare's powerful instrument, wherein he controls it with the unusual combination of force, subtlety, and exactitude” In Act one, scene one, we are introduced to Gloucester and his parallel plot line before we
